"Though...this will appeal mostly to school and public libraries, we think it will also be appreciated by undergraduate students beginning ethnic studies research. It will certainly be useful to school, academic, and public library reference librarians assisting these students, and it will have strong appeal for subject buffs as well."
Net Connect (February 2001)

"Now a single, integrated product, the Discovering Collection offers work and research questions, providing context, analysis, and interpretation. Best known for its extensive use of hyperlinking within a controlled framework, the Discovering Collection encourages investigation and discovery in a friendly, intuitive electronic environment, according to the company."

The Book Report (September/October 2001)

"...appropriate for elementary, middle school, high school, and even undergraduate libraries without question, although we would emphasize the primary through high school audience. Public libraries can benefit as well, as Discovery Collection includes the five core subject areas, making this an appropriate resource for anyone beginning a research project."
Library Journal (Fall 2001)

"Gale's Discovering Collection is a comprehensive database that includes the content of their Discovering, Exploring, Worldmark, and UXL series—four of their most popular CD-ROM collections. The two thousand biographies of noteworthy individuals, many with color or black-and-white photographs, comprise just a small section of this large product. Like Biography Reference Bank, a more detailed search screen allows users to identify biographies by ethnicity. Since all of this database's content is original, all of it is full text. The biographies are clearly written and easily understandable."
VOYA (August 2001)

"Biographical profiles, reference sources, and search flexibility make DISCovering Multicultural America a wonderful springboard for ethnic studies research. Highly recommended for academic, public, and school libraries, supporting ethnic/multicultural studies."
Library Journal (December 2000)
